what would be the best way to use this piece of gear. i've been wondering where this would stand considering the high amount of armor.

For your EH set. Progresssion tanking, when you need high health and want to mitigate as much physical damage as possible as well as survive the magical burst damage.

They are so good that I think most warrior tanks plan their T8 set bonus around keeping the legs.

Legplates of the Endless Void - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45594) might be better, but then again, a lot of people will never see this drop.

I put a 24 stam gem and a 8 expertise / 12 stam gem in mine as well as the leg armor kit Frosthide Leg Armor - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=38373) and almost never change them out for other pants. Occasionally I'll wear my Legplates of Sovereignty - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40589) instead when I need high expertise, like when I'm on interupt duty on Iron Council.

I do exactly the same thing. I manage to acquire one of the fishing daily's 30 Stamina gems and threw that in my Legguards as well to make them even more ubiquitous.

My 30 stamina gem is in my belt Indestructible Plate Girdle - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45551) since I never change belts. I managed to pick up the gem for only 400g from someone who was in a hurry for gold. They are normally at least double that in the AH on my server.

I'm not sure how these stand up compared to Malyagos' pants. When you switch, assuming you gear for stamina, you gain 24 stamina, but loose over .5% avoidance, and a huge helping of expertise, which is not the easiest stat to find. The armor is nice, yes, all 800 of it, but I'm not sure I see the value in switching.

I did it because they swap parry for dodge,just like the ablativ belt vs the badge one.

800 armor is so ridiculously better than 0.5% avoidance that its not even funny.
